The Yes We Can center boasts green features like a solar carport, geothermal heating and cooling, solar panels, and rooftop rainwater collecting bins for onsite irrigation. Inside, the facility offers amenities for the whole community to enjoy including a TV studio, a senior lounge, two NBA-sized basketball courts, an internet café, fitness and dance studios, and much more.
